The Sunnyvale real estate market is appreciating at an incredibly fast rate. The month over month changes might be reflective of appreciation in a normal  year.

Here are a few quick points from the single family home market below:

  • The sale to list price ratio rose higher again, with homes selling on average at 121.8% (+0.2% from last month, +18.2% from a year ago)
  • Days on market were at 9 in April, down from 14 in March and down from 10 a year ago.
  • The average sale price was $2,607,490 (-7.2% from March 2022 and +17.6% from April 2021)
  • The median sale price was $2,600,000 (-4.7% from last month and +17.6%  from last year)
  • Active listings shrunk again, and sat at 33 at the end of April (down from 35 in March and 40 from April 2021)

The bottom line is that there’s not enough inventory but it seems like every potential buyer wants to get a home ASAP, before interest rates rise any further and before stocks tank any further.

What about the Sunnyvale condo and townhome market?

The real estate market for the condominiums and townhouses in Sunnyvale, while not so competitive, is still a strong seller’s market.

The closed sales (as seen on the Sunnyvale RE Report for condos and townhomes) show that properties are often selling above list price in this segment of the market, but are nowhere near as hot as houses.
